Tehran, June 23, 2020 (ICANA) - Special Assistant to the President of the Islamic Parliament of Iran Hossein Amir Abdollahian advised Australia not to accompany the United States in Trump’s illogical policies.
Amir Abdollahian made the remarks Tuesday in a meeting with Australian Ambassador to Iran Lyndall Sachs.
He described Iran-Australia relations as excellent and constructive, saying they fall short of the high capacities of the two countries.
He hoped for developing relations in parliamentary, political and economic fields.
Referring to complicated regional crises and escalation of crises by the US creating military coalitions, he described them as nonconstructive.
Iran understands relations between the US and Australia but accompanying US in Trump's unwise policies will not help maintain sustainable peace and security, Iranian official noted.
Iran attaches importance to negotiations between regional countries and believes that regional crises will be ended through negotiations and political solutions with no foreign intervention.
Amir Abdollahian described IAEA act against Iran as provocative and against international regulations.
Meanwhile, Sachs said in spite of current complexities, Australia is interested in boosting trade ties with Iran.
Referring to large number of Iranian students and elites studying in Australia, she said that they have significant share in developing science in the world.
She alluded to Australia 70-80 percent share of agricultural products and exports through sea, saying maritime freedom and security are of importance for Australia.
Australia understands Iran's key role in maintaining regional security, she noted.
Referring to Australian forces’ advisory presence in Iraq and Afghanistan for training military forces in these countries, Sachs said that Australia is willing to help maintain international peace and stability.
Australia does not interfere in internal affairs of other countries, she said,
The country holds talks with parties and plays its part, she reiterated.
The Australian diplomat described parliamentary cooperation and presence of the members of parliamentary delegations in international parliamentary meetings as good opportunity for strengthening international relations.
